Scope of Services

Preface
For over 50 years, we have been supplying libraries with academic and scholarly books. In that time, Midwest Library Service has established a reputation within the library community as the best library book service in the business. In fact, Midwest Library Service has become synonymous with superior service.

Scope
Midwest Library Service provides books from more than 20,000 U.S., Canadian, and U.K. publishers each year. No company can supply every book from every publisher; and such claims should be regarded with skepticism. We continually add new publishers to our database, and we make every effort to obtain their books. Our commitment is to offer coverage of the widest scope possible within the following spectrum of publishing:

  • University presses
  • Scientific, technical, and health science publishers
  • Trade presses
  • Small presses
  • Reference presses
  • Textbook presses
  • Paperback presses, including trade, quality and mass market
  • Religious and theological presses
  • Reprinters
  • Associations
  • Societies
  • Institutes
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Privately published
  • Corporate
